Rwanda is to gain more development in the trade and tourism industry due to her participation in the forthcoming regional trade fair that will take place in Congo Brazzaville come March this year 2014. According to a press release by MINICOM, this is not going to be the only fair Rwandan business people will attend since there are many others organized in West Africa for them to attend.
Flights to Brazzaville will be sponsored by the country’s airline Rwandair which will not only be flying to Brazzaville, Lagos, and Accra on its added on destination list but also to Doula by March 2014. With the cargo aircraft Rwandair has, goods have been exported to West Africa and will continue being exported.
With such trade fairs, Rwanda will be showcasing investment opportunities and tourism hence helping bring in more investors and tourists into the country. These two sectors will again be supported by the new system of easy Visa processes current in African Union member states that allows citizens to get a Visa on arrival at a certain destination.
According to the press release, this is a great opportunity for Rwandair since the airline can now go to more distant places in Africa. When people participate in such tourism fairs, this helps promote investment and trade in the country hence helping to build it up.
Rwandans, since the genocide, have tried to rebuild the country and so far they have received good results. According to President Paul Kagame, success has been achieved because of the sound national vision, discipline, and a resilient mindset, and the protection of tourism resources like the mountain gorillas in the volcanoes.
Today, Rwanda safari holidays are very popular, selling like hot cake! Thousands of tourists fly into Rwanda for mountain gorilla tracking, chimpanzee tours, wild game viewing, community, and cultural tours, canopy walks, not forgetting genocide memorial tours among tours.
